party poker

It’s only wafer thin!

[The Meaning of Life; Monty Python (March 31, 1983)]

Sometimes misquoted “But sir, it’s wafer thin!” this macro is used to get someone to do something (anything).

Obvious: getting someone to take the last piece of pie.
Less obvious: getting someone to scratch your back.
Unlikely but acceptable: getting someone to punch a tree.
